Hey guys, thanks very much for the links to all those sites with examples of these bolts.

Allen head bolts. VWs and Audis are littered with them. Go to any junk yard and get any size you need of a VW.. PS: On a VW the heads are all METRIC. and the popular sizes are 5mm and 7mm.
Being the thifty guy I am, I like the sound of that.
Always looking for an excuse to poke around the wrecking yards!

You'll also need the smaller belt to go with it. Mine used a Gates Micro-V K050385
Fitting a belt for mine is a bit complicated, as not only will I be using a smaller crank pulley and a larger alternator pulley... but I've also got Dodgerunner's auto-tensioner installed. The belt that's normally used with his tensioner is a K050450 (45"). As near as I can determine (using a wire for measuring), I'll now need a K050420 (42") belt.
To give all of you from the States an idea of how much Canadians get ripped off with auto parts prices here, the belt I need at Lordco
(a large auto parts supply company) lists at $38.89
. With their car club "discount", the belt can be bought there for $27.22
, plus 12% tax. So I checked out eBay. Glad I did. I bought a nice new Goodyear Gatorback belt for $5.60
... which included shipping!
